The Crime Writers’ Association

Short story anthologies

The official CWA Anthologies feature short stories written by a wide cross-section of our members, including Short Story Dagger winners. They are a unique showcase of established and emerging talent alike, entertaining readers with gripping and twist-filled tales of crime. Except in the case of Vintage Crime (see below), all current CWA members are approached and asked to submit stories to a theme. The very best are selected and a fee paid to members.
